PRESIDENT Robert Mugabe secret army, popularly known as the Fifth Brigade killed 3000 people in six weeks compared to 200 who were allegedly killed by the so called dissidents in 12 months, a United States-based Zimbabwean scholar Ken Mufuka has revealed. 
Mufuka said this on Thursday during the launch of his book, The Life and Times of Robert Mugabe, History of Zimbabwe 1980-2015 — Dream Betrayed.
“While hunting down dissidents who had killed 200 people in one year, the 5th Brigade killed 3 000 people in six weeks. The machinery to kill was already there when the so-called arms were discovered. And we argue against that because these arms were known to all even those of us who were in the USA. These weapons had actually become virtually useless because of rust anyway,” Mufuka said. 
“Mugabe’s behaviour over the last 36 years is an aberration. It is like evil, which is committed just for the sake of it. Nobody can explain the rationale behind Gukurahundi, Operation Murambatsvina and other atrocities,” he said.
“We can draw comparison between the President’s behaviour and that of Zulu King Tshaka. Tshaka was asked by his aunt what he would do since he had destroyed all the Zulu Kingdom’s enemies. To this Tshaka answered: ‘I will find more’. Asked when there are no more, Tshaka is said to have retorted. ‘I will make more enemies’.”
Mufuka described his book, launched at the Southern African Political and Economic Series (Sapes) Trust, as an “honest approach on who this man who has affected our lives is, 36 years is a long time”“People of conscience cannot be silenced and we think we have not been as vocal as we should have been. 
A great leader enhances the lives of his people, but for us, Gukurahundi was the mother of all our problems. Matabeleland and Midlands are yet to recover and their spirit is broken. It was a war declared not by Parliament, but by one man. We must face our skeletons with truth because there will not be justice without truth,” Mufuka said.
